About

Who’s the boardgame for?

For everyone! Have you ever played with a good boardgame before? You know, it does not matter how old you are, if you are big enough to understand the rules and roll the dice. And the rules are based on american football. So, if you are a fan of american football, this boardgame is developed for you.

What is Coach?

the Box
the Box

Coach is an absolutely enjoyable board game. It is about sport, but at the same time, it's a strategy board game, too. As we usually put it: this is a strategy game played on a sport field board. You can totally simulate real strategic decisions, play calls, tricks, runs and passes. You will be surprised to see how much it can be done!

It approaches the sport mainly from the coach’s point of view, and who could resist a great game of american football, especially when you can be the coach making all decisions! Coach – The American Football Boardgame enables players to live through and enjoy the excitement of the game together, both as coaches and spectators. Playbooks can be prepared in advance, drafts can be held before each match, offensive and defensive units fight against each other and a field goal might mean an ultimate victory, making the game exciting and enjoyable from the first minute to the last one.

This boardgame offers real treats for everyone who loves american football, and it also gives the enjoyment of a great strategy game for those who have not known much about this sport yet. It also aims to present a highly creative use of possible offense and defense formations and the opportunity to deceive your opponent.

The game can be played by 2-4 players. The length of a game is about 1-3 hours. The game is recommended for players over the age of 10.

What’s the Goal of the project?

We are huge fans of american football and board games, too. Why not alloy the two of them now and create the first american football boardgame which will dominate the world and take Monopoly’s place on the throne.

So our goal is to get your support. To earn your support and create the board game for everybody all over the world.

We are almost done with the boardgame, and now it is open for everyone to get into the business. We need you to make it. You can be part of the story, you can be part of history. Big things happen at the beginning of the road, so here is the opportunity for you to be part of it, and years later you can proudly tell your children and grandchildren how you took part in creating this historical board game.

Besides, we would like to create communal clubs in all the 32 cities that have their own american football team. These clubs can organise programmes and provide their members with an opportunity to play together. We have already worked out a plan of how these communal clubs will be supported.

We would also like to organise local championships for the boardgame in cities, counties, states, and countries worldwide. Though it sounds complicated, it is not at all.

We have been playing with the boardgame for a while now and have experienced how addictive it is, and how wide the range of possibilities either in offense or in defense is.

This is why we are absolutely sure that once the boardgame appears on the market, there will soon be an enormous number of its fans and players. And there is only one thing that beats playing: playing in championships! So we want to organise vast tournaments and championships for the american football boardgame all over the world.

Our project's targeted amount includes the expenses of searching for an expert in the USA who knows and can manage the NFL players' rights of appearance. We are doing this as we are determined to enhance the standards of the board game by producing counters with images of real NFL players.

What are the Rules?  

As we mentioned before, Coach – the american football board game is based on the written and unwritten rules of american football and the traditions of classical boardgames. Of course there is a Booklet of Rules, here are some quotes from it:

On the draft card, the first column shows the number of the round, the second column shows how many player cards can be picked in that round.”

„The two teams can swap player cards after each draft round, this must happen upon a mutual agreement.”

„During the rush, all offense player cards automatically gain a Blocking Zone”

„After a Safety, both teams change their team units, and the next offense will be started from the new offensive team’s 5-octagon line.”

„You do not have to take steps with all the defense player cards! In special cases, if the defensive coordinator does not want to take steps with one of the defense player cards, it is possible to do so, but it has to be announced which player card is refusing the opportunity to move.”

„PENALTIES The players have to watch and check each other’s actions. If you notice foul play, you should inform your playing partner about it, and agree on the fact of foul play together...”

What is common in the real sport and the board game?

What our game-testers thought   

We have asked many people I know (active american football players and coaches, NFL fans and football-loving people) to take part in the testing of the boardgame and to share their experience and opinion with me. They all assured me that the boardgame is easy to play and it guarantees an amusing and exciting game. You can see average test results in the table below. (testers were asked to evaluate the different factors using using a 0-10 scale, where 10 means „I stongly agree”.)

Risks and challenges

Thank you for your support.

Our priority is to make sure the game's design and quality is first class. We have had several prototypes manufactured to ensure we are happy with the final product.

We are confident that Coach – the american football board game printing standards meet our requirements. When this project is founded, we’ll start work immediately.

As the game has already been through a lot of testing, and the book of rules is completed, in fact manufacture is the only thing left for us to be done.

We have already negotiated with several manufacturers, so the production of all components can be set going within a month. It will be followed by packaging and storage, and shipping can be started from September.

Delays will be inevitable due to the usual risks of printing, shipping and customs but our aim is to get the games to you as quickly as possible and we will do our best to stick to the schedule.

We promise to keep you informed at all times, but please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions which I will endeavor to answer as soon as I can.
